Black Button’s flagship Bourbon with a bright, layered palate and a hint of floral aroma.

In 2012, Jason Barrett was a 24 year-old working in his great-grandfather’s button-making factory in Upstate New York, just like four generations of his family. But he was made for a different path. Before the year was out, he started his small-batch distillery operation in his home town of Rochester. But he is sentimental enough to have named his new rebel business after the family tradition — Black Button Distilling. Today, he has developed a range of unique products including a few Gins, their Four-Grain Bourbon, a Fernet, two Moonshines, Vodka, and an interesting "Bourbon Cream" liqueur.

Released in 2014, the Four Grain Bourbon was one of the flagship Spirits from Black Button Distilling. Where most Bourbons use either wheat OR rye, this dram uses both in addition to the corn and malted barley. The official ratio of the mash bill is 60% corn, 20% wheat, 11% malted barley, and 9% rye. Importantly, all the grains are sourced locally from farms near the distillery in Rochester, New York. Each bottle is comprised of barrels that have aged between fourteen and twenty-six months and it’s bottled at 42% ABV.

Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.

Ratings & Reviews
Chris
Chris,
Wheaty and misty on the nose. Taste starts fruity sweet then turns bitter. Not a bad drinker. Probably wouldn’t buy.
 
Cameron
Cameron,
This is good not great. The nose is very unique and musty. Reminded me of an old building. The taste is insanely nutty. I get Brazil nuts very intensely and it lasts all the way through the finish. Definitely glad I tried this because it's unlike any bourbon I've ever had.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Color is amber. Nose is a little off-putting, with dull, stale wheat dominating the nose. Trying to get closer to get deeper/more subtle hues just leads to a burn of ethanol. Without any notes from the nose, first sip is bland. Wheat, a little oak, a little rye spice. Minimal sweetness, minimal vanilla, caramel, or cinnamon expected from a classic Bourbon. Mouthfeel is average. Finish is a tail of the rye spice. Young, youthful whiskey with a unique four grain mashbill that is the only saving grace. Otherwise quite boring.
